what potty chair for a boy
Ok, I have to admit, I thought EC was CRAZY. I didnt believe it for a second, but I am a believer. I am only usually able to have him pee right after he gets up from a nap and usually he is dry when waking from a nap. Today he peed on the potty (er...the sink or all over the mirror) :blush: about 5 times. Poop is another issue. I havent been able to catch that at all. Today he stayed dry for over 2 hours and then did a huge pee. Anyways, now that I am believer, where do I get a tiny potty? His pee-pee kinda goes up and then ends up spray upwards. If I try and touch it to go down, he startles and stops going. He is circ'd (against my husband was adament) so I dont know if that makes a difference.

So, what does everyone use for a potty. I did the tub a few times today and that worked, but kinda messy. Also, what clothes work best? I only usually put him in the potty when he wakes up but undressing quickly gets difficult. I usually just have him in fitteds without a cover or maybe wool longies.

I'm just so excited. Of course, everyone thinks I am completely off my rocker!!! I know one of my friends thinks it is child abuse.
Thanks for any help!! Jane

I use the bjorn little potty

I know there is also a clear version of this that I think would be better than the one I have ( I have a blue one). I have to place my LO further back on the seat so that his winky is not touching the edge or else we will get squirts up and over the edge. I know the ec store ( a few diff types of potty chairs too. Good luck!
